    [Michael] Allen was actually suspended a month ago for having too close of a relationship with the alleged victim. They were seen walking together through University Place neighborhoods. Then, on Tuesday at Curtis High School, the 17-year-old girl reportedly told detectives they actually had sex on several occasions at her home.
    Allen is still on paid leave, but the superintendent said there's enough evidence to fire him right now even before trial just based on his "too close" personal relationship with the student. Banks said he's already violated the teacher guidelines that he signed.

    [Jan 17 is] when a student reported seeing Allen and his 17-year-old teacher’s assistant, who is also a student, walking together after school.“The fact that our teacher was placed on administrative leave the first day that we received any allegations at all is evidence that our policies work,” said Superintendent Patti Banks.


    Probable cause papers state the girl became a teacher aide for Allen and got his number from another student. “She called and texted [Allen] which progressed into them running and walking together. They spent a lot of time together and kissed and touched each other. This usually happened at her house outside in a carport,” according to the court papers ... The court papers state the two exchanged thousands of text messages (before and after he was placed on paid leave) and allegedly had sex three times after Allen was placed on paid leave.

    According to charging documents, a 17-year-old student became a teacher’s aide for Allen and got his phone number from another student. She called and texted Allen. They began to run and walk together, then spent more time together. During that time they began sexual contact, usually at her house. Allen was put on paid administrative leave on Jan. 17 after another student and her mother reported concerns to the school, which told a sheriff’s deputy. The two were told not to have contact, but they continued to see each other and had sex three times, according to charging documents. The 17-year-old knew Allen’s wife had kicked him out of their house, according to charging documents.
